Artist Track Album Label Year Comments New Approx. start time
DJ ALF  put the needle on the record vrs 4   Options     2007  and the name of today's show SITTIN' IN THE MOM'S WHIP, TUNED INTO FMU was inspired by new WFMU listener Sahak from west new york, NJ who wroite in an email from a few days ago that "I go to bergen community college and have a lot of time between my mostly retarded classes (didnt take the bloody placement test seriously, meh) any who i go and sit in the moms whip and surf the channels of the radio one day cause i listened.........." He goes to say he LOVES FMU including this show......Now for those not fully versed on da hip-hop slang I dug into the slang dictionary for the official meaning of "whip" and it is: When the steering wheel was first put into use in automobiles, it was called the "whip". The whip is what you used to control the horses on a stagecoach, hence the analogy. Many years later, various hip hop artists noticed that the Mercedes-Benz logo resembled a steering wheel. They then proceeded to use the old term "whip" to describe any Mercedes-Benz vehicle. The term has now been generalized to classify any expensive automobile.  *   0:00:00 (Pop‑up)

Tetine  slam dunk   Options soul Jazz singles 2006/2007  soul jazz  2007  THIS IS THE FINAL EMAIL from IKE who you will rememver had his breakfast eaten by Monkeys....This is Part 1 in his back in the USA email: Hey there Billy -- Well I'm finally back home and soooo glad to be here. Listened to some of the archive of your show entitled "Monkeys Stole My Breakfast" -- thanks for the shout-outs! One reason I'm really glad to be home is that I really didn't like China. Admittedly I only made it to a few parts of southwestern and western China, and my experience was colored by the pickpocketing incident, so I'm probably judging the country unfairly.  *   2:22:38 (Pop‑up)
          PT 2: Among a few other places, I was in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China, and I was eating true authentic famous Sichuan food in its home city. Great stuff. I also got a massage at a famous place and it was about the equiv. of $1.39 for a half-hour so that was pretty darn good. But everybody in China smokes constantly and everything is impossible to find; each street's name changes about every 200 feet and virtually nobody speaks English, and things keep getting torn down and replaced by boring shiny shopping malls. No history there.    2:28:43 (Pop‑up)
          PART III of III And they all smoke everywhere. All the time. Constantly. Drove me crazy. The smoke is totally ubiquitous and pervasive. They smoke on the train in front of the no-smoking signs; they smoke in the Internet cafes (while playing online video games instead of trying to find a news site not blocked by the gov't); they smoke in all the restaurants all the time; they blow smoke in your face while you're walking down the sidewalk. My throat quickly felt like it was filled with shards of glass, especially after train rides. The people there were mostly very very rude and unpleasant, totally unlike Thais and Lao who are very friendly and kind. And none of them speak any English, nor can they conceive of a human being who is so stupid that (s)he can't speak Mandarin. It's just like being a non-English-speaker in most parts of the U.S. -- in other words, hellish. Except that they're possibly nastier about it. I did meet one or two incredibly nice people though. OK, gotta run. Talk to you later! -- Ike    2:29:13 (Pop‑up)

Please please don't leve the Friday afternoon time slot! Your show is the last thing I hear before I leave work on Friday. After a work week, I'm so tired and spent by the time Friday 2pm (my time) rolls around, I think to myself that there's no way I can function or have any energy for the weekend. Your show jazzes me and puts me in such a positive mood for the weekend. Thanks.

My first record was Tears For Fears "Songs From The Big Chair". I think I was too young for it. I was 8. It took a while for appreciation to set it. But the appreciation for you, Billy Jam, is right away. WHOOT WHOOT!

  9:26pm BillyJam:

hey thanks to everyone who listened to this show including Porkchop, Lisa, LSmonkey, DJ Spiderman, and everyone else who took time to post COMMENTS. Thanks also to my two guests - Donald D and Jazzy G - and also to Ike for his monkey travel tales, a super-duper shout out to $mall Change for assisting greatly in helping hook up the equipment (tune into the mighty Small Change's "Nickel & Dime" radio show Tuesday 11:PM -- 2AM). Big shout-out to new WFMU listener Sahak in West New York for inspiring today's show title (sittin in the mom's whip), and also to all the cool folks I met at the WFMU Record Fair last week including DJ Repoman and J-Force. ....Note: the talented BOB W will be taking over the show the next two weeks (November 16th and 23rd) and I will return on Friday November 30th - peace: billyjam
  8:04am Johnny Doobs:

I'm trying to learn the maths behind reverberant sound here in Limerick University in Ireland - but to be honest - the book is open, but the headphones are on. The only info going into my braincells is through my ears and not my eyes. I blame your show. Really enjoy the show, this one was a cracker! Big ups. Say hey to Steinski, he's got my Kerrynini t-shirt! Diggedy dope.
